Greece is a more demanding sailing area in the Med. The Etesians (aka Meltemi) are the prevailing wind in the summer months with a force of 5. This may requires some sailing experience, but also allows sportive sailing. On the other hand, it is also possible to sail in the late autumn with pleasant temperatures and less wind.

From the navigational point of view, sailing in Greece is easy. There are no tidal streams or hidden rocks.
